October

O-C-T-O-B-E-R
This is the month of the candy bar.
Christopher Columbus has a holiday.
Fall is here...
Winter's on the way!!

That's the only "month rhyme" I know. If anyone out there knows any more, please tell me! I would love to learn some others.

Todd loves this time of year. He always gets excited about Halloween and all the gross scary stuff. I prefer cute ghosts and pumpkins over the graveyard scenes with blood and guts. These are the sidewalk lights we put up each year. The skulls are Todd's, and the pumpkins are mine!


Today was one of those days that I wish I had brought my camera with me when I left the house. First, as we drove through a shopping center, we saw this older man driving right along with traffic on is lawnmower... no grass in sight! After that, we went into the 99-cent store for me to buy some plastic storage containers for my classroom. As I walked the isles, I noticed this 7"X5" Pocket calculator. I guess the pockets run much larger in China than they do here, even in Texas!

I hope everyone is having a great start to Fall. Have a great week!!

Natalie,
This is a FABULOUS post! You have such an interesting and exciting life. I don't know how it can possibly get any better than this! Okay, so I just wanted there to be a comment for once!

Todd has always loved Halloween ever since he was big enough to not be scared by the masks and decorations. Please post any other pictures of your decorations and costumes should you use those for the night of trick or treaters. Thanks so much for keeping us posted on your lives this way.
Love, Mom Falcon
